Jocelyn Shaw reports that Grand Valley State University and Hackley Public Library are finalizing a selective housing agreement which will result in many old volumes moving from HPL to GVSU. GVSU and HPL are in the same Congressional District, so the material will still be available within the original district. GVSU has much better facilities for preserving the materials, many of which date to the mid to late 1800s. The move will also free up much needed shelf space at HPL. Both libraries are very excited about the move. Among the items that will be moving are the Congressional Globe, American State Papers, Statutes at Large from vol 12 through 1999, and Congressional Debates.
